The Office of the State Comptroller (OSC) is charged with ensuring that New Jersey’s recovery from the COVID-19 health crisis is free from waste, fraud, or abuse of any kind. That includes reviewing potential state contracts valued at $150,000 or more.
OSC also provides guidance to Recovery Program participants to make sure they’re advancing open competition, fairness, and transparency throughout the contracting process.
